  • Political Updates
    • AB99 – This bill was attempting to increase the prevailing wage threshold from $100,000 to $250,000. This would have had a sever impact on our membership hours on prevailing wage work. Our friends in the legislature opposed this bill and it did not meet the deadline for passage. This bill is dead.
  • AB227 – Sections 1 and 2 of this bill set forth: (1) the persons who may perform work that requires a contractor’s license; and (2) the persons who may perform for a contractor work that does not require a contractor’s license. Existing law sets forth certain acts which constitute cause for disciplinary action against a licensed contractor by the State Contractors’ Board. (NRS 624.3015) Section 3 of this bill: (1) revises the list of acts to include entering into an agreement with a natural person who is not an employee of the licensed contractor and not licensed as a contractor to perform for the licensed contractor any work which requires a contractor’s license; and (2) provides that in addition to any disciplinary or other action that may be taken against the licensed contractor, such an agreement is void and unenforceable.
  • SB247 – AN ACT relating to apprenticeships; revising the mandatory criteria for approval and registration under certain circumstances; revising requirements for the approval and registration of a proposed program; and providing other matters properly relating thereto.
